Today I bring you to the medieval town of Venasque in Provence.
Less than a dozen kilometers southeast from Carpentras where my parents lived for many years, perched up on a rocky outcrop, is this picturesque old town we often passed through on our outings by car.
Fortunately we stopped one time so I could capture this World War I memorial for Taphophile Tragics.
While I liked the monochrome version, my honey preferred the color... so mouseover and choose your own. But he agreed that this handsome profile of the fallen soldier looked better in black and white.
The war memorial stands next to the Romanesque Church of Notre-Dame (12th-17th C).
And overlooks the Nesque valley below.
